- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
Gamersuperstar appears to be an untrustworthy browser extension targeted at Google Chrome users, although with time it might become compatible with other browsers as well. Our researchers learned the application could show unreliable third-party advertising content which is why they decided the add-on should be classified as adware. The software’s description says that even though Gamersuperstar shows ads, it provides free games to play. However, it seems to us there are lots of web pages that provide games free of charge without displaying annoying advertisements. Therefore, if you hate seeing pop-ups, sponsored links, and other irritating content we advise you not to waste any time with this adware. To get rid of it at once we recommend either following the instructions available at the end of this article or installing a reliable antimalware tool.

At the moment of writing, Gamersuperstar is being spread through Chrome Web Store page (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/advertisement-offers-by-g/eogmpgppidehapppmipeahegomlindkg), but our researchers say it could be distributed through other channels as well. For example, The adware could be spread with bundled software installers promoted via untrustworthy file-sharing web pages. If this appears to be true, it might mean some users could receive the application unknowingly as some users are not so attentive during the installation process. To be more precise, bundled software installers may offer more than one tool to install, and in some cases, users can only see such suggestions after choosing advanced installation settings. The problem is, many users like to rush the process to be able to use the desired programs faster, and by doing so, they might allow various threats settle in without even realizing it. This is why we advise always pick advanced installations settings when possible and review all terms carefully. Not to mention, to avoid threats distributed with bundled installers you could stay away from sites offering pirated software or freeware from unknown creators.
